Elon Musk: Tesla Model 3 orders hit $14 billion in one week

One week after Elon Musk unveiled the Tesla Model 3, the company’s first mass-market car, hundreds of thousands of people have paid $1,000 to reserve the car despite its expected late-2017 launch.

That reservation figure totals to $14 billion (theoretical dollars) in sales, or 325,000 cars, with one big caveat: with only $1,000 down, some, perhaps many, of these orders will inevitably be adjusted or canceled over the next few years. In any event, that’s $325 million paid in preorders to date for a car that basically doesn’t exist yet.

For reference, Tesla hit $115 million in theoretical preorders the night of its unveiling, $7.5 billion after a single day, and $10 billion after three days.

Because we’re not talking about true preorders — Tesla fans aren’t putting $35,000 down, so these cares are certainly not yet purchased — it’s important to approach Musk’s announcement with skepticism. That said, these numbers are pretty incredible, according to Green Car Reports’ John Voelcker on Monday: “Not all of those reservations will convert to actual orders, of course. But even if only half of them do, 150,000 Model 3s would amount to more plug-in electric cars than General Motors, Toyota, Ford, BMW, or VW Group has sold in more than five years. Only Nissan has sold more (slightly over 200,000 as of last month).”

Radha Madhav Corporation Limited (RMCL)

Radha Madhav Corporation Limited is a Limited Company having its registered address at 50/9A, Daman Industrial Estate, village kadaiya, Nani Daman 396210 UT of Daman & Diu. The Company is registered on Bombay Stock Exchange Limited and National Stock Exchange of India Limited. The Company is one of the leading Company in India in Flexible Packaging.

The Company does business of Manufacturers, Dealers, Exporters, Importers of all kinds and classes and Commission Agents of Packaging Mediums, Containers, Bags and Articles used in packing, made out of Paper, Plastic, Rubber, jute, cloth, metal or combination of these including Resins, Polyethylene and Synthetic Chemicals and other suitable materials and whether required for industrial, commercial, household defense or any other purpose.

The conventional modes of packaging are being replaced by flexible packaging. Large manufacturers of FMCG, appliances, automobiles, pharmaceuticals, etc., are focusing on their core activity, driven by the mantra of core competence. Thereby non-core activities such as packaging or even manufacturing are being outsourced. In this environment more and more companies are likely to outsource packaging to specialist service providers. The flexible packaging industry, which uses paper, film of various types like PET, BOPP etc constitutes approx. 40%of entire packaging industry. Established global players in various industries are setting up operations in India, China, etc., to derive the benefit of lower costs as well as access to large potential markets. This makes India and China very attractive destinations for the packaging industry. The expansion of the Indian primary and secondary packaging market has been accelerated broadly due to growing middle class, conversion of traditional form of packaging into modern forms, favorable excise structure, liberalization of Indian economy, globalization, increasing hygiene consciousness, usage of small flex pack pouches, increasing textile exports packed in plastic bags, entry of multinationals fuelling the demand for sophisticated plastic-based flexible packaging products. The consumer market dominates the global packaging industry and accounts for an estimated 70 per cent of sales, with industrial applications taking the remaining 30 per cent of the share. The food industry is the largest end-user market, followed by the beverage industry. A high degree of potential exists for almost all user segments in India are expanding appreciably.

The introduction of biologics-based drugs has changed the pharmaceuticals industry. These highly sensitive drugs, whose efficacy is package-dependent, require high-barrier materials. Among current trends are increased use of disposable products, an aging population, continuing cost pressures on suppliers, increasing influence of hospital and health care related purchasing groups, continued shifts to outside contract packaging, and more and more emphasis on child-resistant/senior-friendly and tamper evident packaging. All of these will challenge the healthcare packaging industry through the decade and beyond. Intensified competition in the pharmaceutical industry is causing more importance to be placed on packaging as a product positioning tool-both visually and functionally.

The Company has Strong demand, multi production facilities, excellent marketing network, established strong clientele in the domestic market ensure a good prospects for the company.

Top 10 best-selling cars

A closer look at the UK’s best-selling new cars in 2015 when a record 2.6m new cars were sold.

2015 was the best ever year for the UK automotive industry, with over 2.6million new cars registered over the 12 months – the highest number on record. Below you’ll find full details on the UK’s top 10 best-selling cars over the course of the year.

December registrations continued the trend that had run throughout 2015 and were up 8.4 per cent on the previous year, with over 180,000 new cars registered. The figures round off 2015 as the fourth consecutive year of growing registrations – up 6.3 per cent on 2014.

Most economical cars

Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) let us see exactly how many cars were registered each month, and which models are selling particularly well. We’ve used them to put together this list with the full registration figures for the top 10 models for this year-to-date.

Only in October 2015 did we see a fall in new car registrations, a likely consequence of the VW emissions scandal but as November and December figures show, the market recovered strongly.

Best new car deals 2015

You’ll notice a lot of similarities in the top selling models in the UK: most new cars sold aren’t sports cars, large SUVs or luxury saloons. Those models are produced in much smaller numbers than the compact family hatchbacks, superminis and crossoversthat make up the bulk of car sales in Britain these days.

Scroll down this page to see the top 10 best-selling cars of 2015 so far, with full sales figures and some details on each model.

The top 10 best-selling cars in 2015

  • 1. Ford Fiesta – 133,434 registrations in 2015

New car sales up again in November

The Ford Fiesta has been topping the UK sales charts for a long time now – and it’s easy to see why. Whether you go for the entry-level model or the hot Fiesta ST model, it’s great fun to drive. It’s good value too, and is a practical and handsome supermini that will appeal to all sorts of buyers.

  • 2. Vauxhall Corsa – 92,077 registrations in 2015

Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi front

The new Vauxhall Corsa has started its life with very strong sales, thanks to low prices and a well-judged revamp. Despite looking similar to the old model, it’s better to drive and cheaper to run – buyers are clearly taking notice of the latest Vauxhall supermini.

  • 3. Ford Focus – 83,816 registrations in 2015

Ford Focus - front cornering

With its fun handling, practical body style, efficient engines and revised looks, the new Ford Focus is a strong seller in the UK. It’s been a top model for Ford for many years and the new version looks set to continue that trend.

  • 4. Volkswagen Golf – 73,409registrations in 2015

Volkswagen Golf hatchback 2013 front static

The Volkswagen Golf needs no introduction, really – it’s been around since the 1970s and the latest version is the best yet. It has an upmarket cabin and is comfortable on long journeys, with a huge range of petrol and diesel engines to choose from. It also has one of the most recognisable car names in the UK, which can’t hurt sales. What could, however, is the emissions scandal surrounding VW.

  • 5. Nissan Qashqai – 60,814 registrations in 2015

Nissan Qashqai 1.6 DIG-T 163 front

The Nissan Qashqai is considered by many to be the first modern ‘crossover’, with SUV styling and hatchback running costs. It’s a great car for those needing a practical family runabout.

  • 6. Volkswagen Polo – 54,900 registrations in 2015

  • 7. Vauxhall Astra – 52,703 registrations in 2015

Vauxhall Astra

Vauxhall’s Ford Focus rival, the Astra, has been around for a while now – but that’s not hurting sales. It’s a handsome family hatchback, and with the low prices being offered by Vauxhall dealers the Astra has managed to make it into the top 10 best-selling cars 2015.

  • 8. Audi A3 – 47,653 registrations in 2015

Audi A3 Sportback front tracking

It might use many of the same parts as the VW Golf, being built on the same platform, but the Audi A3 features a few more upmarket options that bring the price up a bit. It’s a tactic that’s clearly working – buyers are flocking to the upmarket Audi and sending into the top 10 best-sellers.

  • 9. MINI – 47,076 registrations in 2015

MINI Cooper 5-door long-termer - front action

The MINI has clearly been a sales hit since it hit the roads last year. It’s now jumped into the top 10 and knocked the equally retro Fiat 500 out. It’s easy to see why it’s been so popular, too, with good looks, a great drive and an upmarket interior to match the badge.

Vauxhall Mokka whisper diesel action

The Vauxhall Mokka has been a strong seller since its release in 2012, and it’s finally made its way onto this list, knocking out the premium Mercedes C-Class. It’s the second crossover in this list, and competes thanks to a great new ‘Whisper’ diesel engine and a spacious interior.

Bajaj Auto

The Bajaj Group is amongst the top 10 business houses in India. Its footprint stretches over a wide range of industries, spanning automobiles (two-wheelers and three-wheelers), home appliances, lighting, iron and steel, insurance, travel and finance. The group’s flagship company, Bajaj Auto, is ranked as the world’s fourth largest two- and three- wheeler manufacturer and the Bajaj brand is well-known across several countries in Latin America, Africa, Middle East, South and South East Asia. Founded in 1926, at the height of India’s movement for independence from the British, the group has an illustrious history. The integrity, dedication, resourcefulness and determination to succeed which are characteristic of the group today, are often traced back to its birth during those days of relentless devotion to a common cause. Jamnalal Bajaj, founder of the group, was a close confidant and disciple of Mahatma Gandhi. In fact, Gandhiji had adopted him as his son. This close relationship and his deep involvement in the independence movement did not leave Jamnalal Bajaj with much time to spend on his newly launched business venture. We are celebrating 125th Birth anniversary of Shri. Jamnalal Bajaj on 4th of November 2014.

His son, Kamalnayan Bajaj, then 27, took over the reigns of business in 1942. He too was close to Gandhiji and it was only after Independence in 1947, that he was able to give his full attention to the business. Kamalnayan Bajaj not only consolidated the group, but also diversified into various manufacturing activities. The present Chairman of the group, Rahul Bajaj, took charge of the business in 1965. Under his leadership, the turnover of the Bajaj Auto the flagship company has gone up from INR.72 million to INR. 120 billion, its product portfolio has expanded and the brand has found a global market. He is one of India’s most distinguished business leaders and internationally respected for his business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit.
